This book tackles the enormous problem of security breaches head-on. Exploring all aspects of the problem in detail--from how attacks are structured to the structure of magnetic strips to point-to-point encryption, and more--it's packed with practical recommendations. It goes beyond standard PCI compliance guides to offer real solutions on how to achieve better security at the point of sale. The book discusses credit and debit card security, with an emphasis on point-to-point encryption of payment transactions (P2PE) from standards to design to application; explores all groups of security standards applicable to payment applications, including PCI, FIPS, ANSI, EMV, and ISO; explains how protected areas are hacked and how hackers spot vulnerabilities; and proposes defensive maneuvers, such as introducing cryptography to payment applications and better securing application code. --
